It’s never too late to dream, or to follow that dream… Philadelphia native Ruby Brown was in health care in her mid-thirties; but it wasn’t her heart’s work. So - back to school. At Evergreen State College Ruby pursued her dream – radio. Ruby helped Olympia’s KAOS for 5 years as on-air host and staff. After graduation she went to a major Seattle station for another 5 years. Commercials never warmed Ruby's heart, so she returned to public radio with KPLU. Currently Ruby hosts Jazz Sunday Side Up (11am-2pm Sundays) and occasionally fills in on other jazz shows at KPLU.
Her most memorable KPLU moment – hearing from a listener overseas and realizing she was bringing her work worldwide.
